Another blog on the Internet, I know. Another blog from me, I know. I wanted to start writing in English, and I love making blog posts, so it’s the good way to go for me. Even if the goal of this blog is not to practice my writing skill, I must say that I’m still doing a lot of errors when I write (and speak) even if a big part of my actual role is in English: co-workers, meetings, e-mails, events… It will be a good way for me to practice, and please, don’t be shy to correct me, it’s one of the ways to learn.
My previous life was only in French: family, friends, jobs, conferences… Everywhere I went, or everyone I talked to most of the time was only speaking French. I read some computer books in English or listen to some music, but it wasn’t a big part of my life. Now, my new life goes in both languages. I travel a lot everywhere in Canada and sometimes in the US, so I meet a lot of people that don’t speak French. It’s gonna be a way for me to stay in touch with these people and as “collateral damages”, reach more people. I really love French, but it doesn’t mean that I don’t love English too.
This blog will be like the one I have in French (À la base 2): a place with no pretentiousness where I’ll write everything that I’ll want to share with you. It will be a site where I’ll write about day to day thoughts that are related or not to computer. At the end, it will be a country where freedom is the king and myself is… myself!
Like all my projects, I give myself a probation time. Life is too short, so I’m always looking to do only stuffs that I enjoy. It’s the same for this blog: it could be a long-term relationship or just a site that will last as long as I’ll have fun to write on it! For those of you that know me, you know that I’m always unhappy with the theme I use, so it’s currently a work-in-progress. For now, I’m happy with the result…
As for the title of the blog, I think it worth another blog post to explain it. So, what do you think of this idea? If you think this blog will be worth reading, please subscribe to the RSS feed or by e-mail. I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
P.S.: By the way, as this blog is born, it doesn’t mean that my French one will die for now.
